FIAF Fall Series: "Cinematographer Caroline Champetier: Shaping the Light"

Award-winning director of photography Caroline Champetier is a master of her craft. This fall at FIAF's CinéSalon, see some of her most striking films, including Holy Motors, Of Gods and Men, and films recently restored under her supervision.

The orchestrator of lighting and camerawork on more than 100 films, Champetier's art is often felt as much as it is seen. She has a rare ability to shape light to create palpable energy, evoke powerful emotions, and transform movie sets into fully-realized worlds. Champetier is the cinematographer behind some of France’s greatest filmmakers, past and present. A student of William Lubtchantsky, she has worked with generations of pioneering filmmakers from Jean-Luc Godard and Jacques Rivette to Chantal Akerman, Arnaud Desplechin, and Léos Carax.

Q&A with Caroline Champetier after both Oct 24 screenings.
